Iberian Imperial Eagle (Aquila adalberti)
Tejo Internacional NP, Portugal
Nikon D300, Nikon 500mm f4 + Nikon TC-14EII (=700mm)
ISO200, 1/800, f7.1

Atop a holm oak, this Iberian Imperial Eagle watches over its territory. Once extinct in Portugal as a nesting bird, this eagle appears tobe coming back. Basically, recuperating this bird of prey depends on what will happen to the greatly decimated population of the European Rabbit.
